The Program

How It Works

Bluebolt offers beautifully designed solar powered benches and newspaper kiosks to Universities, Colleges, Lifestyle Centers and Municipalities at no charge.

Our benches and newspaper kiosks provide an update to existing outdoor structures and are powered by the sun! These solar powered units are 100% off the grid; units will provide users with charging locations and lights that serve as a safety. You choose the locations, and the unit gets installed with a few bolts in the ground.

We produce, install, maintain and you will have advanced your institution to use clean energy.

Bluebolt funds this program through the sale of approved advertising on 2 panels of each unit. In addition to going green, the institution will generate income.
